1939 Underwood Ace Serial # S1241790 1939 Underwood Ace typewriter, Serial # S1241790 Jonny Eberle's 1939 Underwood Ace typewriter. 2024-04-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jonny Eberle: 1939 Underwood Ace Serial # S1241790 Picked up this typewriter in Northern Arizona in 2009. It has a great typing feel, very solid, but is in need of a deep clean to free up several keys that are sticking. Has ribbon reverse switch, line spacing selector, and flat glass-top keys. 10 CPI Pica typeface. There's some rust on the frame below the spacebar and two rubber feet have crumbled, but otherwise in good condition. Obviously was kept in the case for much of its life.
